BMG’s service for the Zambian agricultural sector focuses on the importance of investing in high quality equipment and components for high efficiency and optimal productivity in all agricultural disciplines.

“With special BMG branches in Lusaka and Kitwe as well as distributors in Mkushi, Mazabuka and Choma, the company can offer the Zambian agricultural sector quick access to quality components that are supported by the technical sales team in the country.

“Through BMG’s Boer Slim / Smart Farming approach, the company’s RSA-based agricultural experts work closely with farmers across southern Africa to help them cope with the ever-changing trends in agricultural machinery,” said Brendan Kitcat, Branch manager of BMG in Lusaka, Zambia. “We have seen greater acceptance among local farmers that advanced equipment is required to optimize productivity and minimize downtime, and that this investment translates into tangible operational efficiencies. Farmers recognize that BMG’s BTC range of agricultural components has value.

“BMG offers solutions for the sustainability of agriculture that focus on effective food production, the correct use of suitable equipment for the respective task and the efficient use of advanced technologies. The company’s extensive range of technical components, which meet all relevant quality assurance and specification certifications, is carefully selected for local farmers to ensure optimal performance – even under difficult operating conditions.

BMG’s electronics, fluid technology, tooling and power transmission components have been carefully selected to form an efficient system that increases productivity and energy efficiency.

A key focus is on selecting, installing and operating advanced electromechanical systems – including Motoline solar inverters and electronic frequency converters (VSDs) – designed to improve efficiency, reduce energy consumption and minimize maintenance.

The Motoline solar inverters from BMG for water pumps offer reliable use in agricultural irrigation and water supply systems, for rural domestic and communal water supply as well as for ponds and dams.

All solar powered systems require a solar inverter to convert direct current (DC) generated by solar panels or other alternative sources into alternating current (AC) for use in industrial, commercial and residential applications.

BMG’s Motoline P19000-S Solar series inverters for photovoltaic (PV) water pumps have built-in MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) algorithms that support accurate tracking of PV power to ensure the best possible performance is achieved becomes.

The notable features of these solar inverters include dry run protection, tank water level control and a dual AC and DC supply mode. In addition to the DC input of a PV system, this series supports the connectivity of the AC input so that the AC input can feed the drive when the PV supply is limited. A clear LED display shows the real-time situation and system parameters, and the RS485 remote control system increases the flexibility of the system.

BMG, an authorized Danfoss DrivePro® service partner, has supplied Danfoss VSDs to farmers who want to accelerate and expand crop production but who are limited by power restrictions.

Positive feedback from farmers is that with this energy-efficient system, there are no voltage drops when the process is started and the wear and tear on mechanical components is reduced. Production is less labor intensive, which lowers his shift costs.

BMG also supported farmers who had to reduce the cost of irrigation per hectare. After installing VSDs on pumping sets, the electricity supply is used more efficiently, resulting in improved crop production and an expansion of what farmers can offer to other products.

Danfoss VLT AQUA Drive FC 202 VSDs, which offer additional energy savings compared to traditional VSD controls, are designed for water and wastewater applications including irrigation. A notable feature of this system is a soft start / stop function that prevents water hammer from occurring when the pumps are started and stopped, reducing the possibility of a pipe rupture. Wear on couplings, pumps and pipes is also reduced.

These VSDs are available from BMG in IP55 enclosures that do not require special panels. This eliminates the need for additional cooling and ventilation that is normally required to extract heat during operation.

The high-quality agricultural replacement components from BMG were developed to improve productivity in the agricultural sector, to work efficiently over longer periods of time, to minimize maintenance requirements and to reduce costs in the long term.

Recently introduced agricultural components include demolition hammers and wheel hammers that allow bolts and nuts to be loosened and tightened quickly and easily. BTC gearbox, specially developed for packing houses and robust Tsubaki RS100HT chain for baling presses, with a 25% higher maximum tensile strength, improved shock resistance and higher fatigue resistance compared to other chains.

Also new are multi-purpose gearboxes, PTO clutches and components as well as specially developed high-performance coulter bearings.

The immediate availability of a comprehensive range of high-quality branded products, technical support and a comprehensive solution service distinguishes the company in the Zambian agriculture.

The Zambian company has teamed up with Aqua Aura – TL Center Pivot representatives in Mkushi – to deliver the consignment inventory in the region.

BMG offers solutions for all major players in the Zambian agricultural sector, including local manufacturers of implements and implements as well as agricultural resellers and farmers.
